Premier League: Dunk to cement home comforts…

There are three Premier League games to be on later Monday, and subscribers will be hoping the latest run of wins continues.

First up sees Brighton entertain Newcastle at the Amex Stadium.

Incentive is often the key factor in these end of season games, and it’s true both teams have relatively little to play for. That said, the visitors have lost their last three games, conceding 10 in the process. They could also be without up to eight players, including defensive star Fabian Schar.

We’ll take a home win, and look for Lewis Dunk to take advantage of defensive lapses by the Magpies from set pieces.

Sheffield United host Everton in the other early game, and will be aiming to win their fifth successive top-flight home match.

Everton have had a poor season, and are struggling with injuries as the season draws to an end. They have taken just 10 points from their last 10 games, and we don’t see them getting any tonight.

The late game sees Wolves host Crystal Palace at Molineux.

The hosts will be looking to end an impressive season in fine style, especially with the potential of European football as a carrot.

Palace have achieved survival, their main aim, but are ending the season in a heap – losing their last six matches and failing to score in five of those games. They have many injuries in the back line, and think this will be another defeat.

Raul Jimenez has been Wolves’ star man, scoring 17 league goals and 26 in total this season. He’s just over evens to score today, but we’ll take a chance that he scores first.
